I should probably start by mentioning the fact that I live in Riverside Country but work in Orange County. I spend most of my free time in Orange Country, as that is where I grew up, the area I know best, and where most of my friends live and spend their time.
I have written and re-written this section over and over again. The honest truth is that I don't really know how to describe myself or who I am looking for. Every time I try and define myself, I feel like I am limiting who I really am. The same goes for the person I am looking for. I can list a million attributes, but the right person might only have two... but they captivate me like no other. If you are interested, feel free to drop me a line. You never know what could happen.
I was once told that I live two different lives. When I wake up in the morning, I put my work clothes on and prepare to live the life of a quiet accountant. I wouldn't say that most people would find what I do exciting, but I do. I find myself at business functions and living the corporate life. After the work day is over, I completely change gears. I love to head out for a drink with friends or head out for a quick ride down the coast. On the weekends, the gear is on and I am in the canyons... whether I am riding the motorcycle through Ortega, or climbing down a rock face in Sierra Madre. I enjoy concerts and music festivals as well. I am far from what one would imagine an accountant to be. I need someone that can be the same. I would like to meet someone that is willing to dress up and play nice at business functions. At the same time, I would like that person to be willing to hop on the bike and just go somewhere at a moments notice. It would be nice if that person can dress to impress the boss one night, and rough it in the mountains the next. I like to say that I am simple in my wants and desires, but complex in my personality.
This year has brought a few changes into my life. I began running and have found quite a bit of enjoying in the experience. At this point, I am logging between 30 and 40 miles per week. A quick 5 or 6 mile run during my lunch really breaks up the day and allows me to come back to my office refreshed and ready to refocus. I am not really looking for someone to run with me, but I would like to find someone that enjoys being active. No matter what the activity is, I am looking for someone that likes to keep moving and might even push me to be more active than I am already.
I believe that there is a fine line between a passion and insanity. When it comes to motorcycles, my existence rests at a point between mechanic, rider, and collector. I am attempted to collect a motorcycle for every occasion. One never knows when there might be a need for a different bike... or even a second for someone else to use.
